Puppy Fundraiser This Saturday 9am!!!

Hey all,

On Sat Dec. 22nd the 9AM Group Class at PlantFit will be a fundraiser for one of our group members (Jacqueline) and pup (Roxanne). The money goes to help paying for surgery on the pup’s leg after an accident. So if you come and are able to spare any help it would be greatly appreciated!

Please RSVP if you will make it (on Facebook @, we want to plan accordingly. Below is a message from Jacqueline.

“Friday November 30, 2012, was the longest day for my sweet dog Roxanne. She broke her hind leg while playing at an off lease dog park. Consequently, we spent the day trying to find a vet that would provide the best care for her and perform surgery on her broken leg! After hours of vet consolations and x-rays of Roxanne’s leg, we were referred to Gresham Animal Hospital. They were very gentle and kind with Roxanne, but the surgery was going to be expensive!!Gresham Animal Hospital informed me that in order for Roxanne’s leg to be fixed she needed surgery immediately (her leg had broken in four places). The cost of the surgery is $3,200.

Roxanne saved my life once many years ago. She’s my best friend. I need to do whatever I can to help her. I gave them all the money I had, including my rent money, I also gave the vet my wedding ring as collateral…….”

Again if anyone is capable of donating to this cause please stop by PlantFit Training Studio Sat Dec. 22 at 9am. We will be hosting a workout specifically for fundraising. If you don’t have time to join the workout feel free to drop by and donate.

Thank you!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       – Jason Morris

8.3.12 Group Workout

This is going to be a fun one! Some people have expressed that I should not post detailed workouts ahead of time because that may scare people from coming to try a class. If you haven’t heard by now, every single one of you can come try out a group class. Every single one of you can perform an appropriate workout. As a fitness professional, I am here to ensure that you are working within your abilities. The number 1 priority at PlantFit Training Studio is INJURY PREVENTION. After that we make sure that you have a fun experience, yet challenging workout. With over 5 years of training experience, watching over thousands and thousands of repetitions performed, I can make adjustments on the fly to ensure your safety. It has been my pleasure to work with many in the Portland community. I look forward to working with many many more.

-Yours in fitness, Ed Bauer CPT, CF-L1, FNC
